It is impossible to actually think on an average day---has it been designed it that way?---similar to when it was illegal to teach a slave to read ?---is it illegal to allow a man time to think today? ----I seem to wander zombie like through the workdays until the weekends when I can pause for those brief moments when i own myself----
I am slowly beginning to understand why the great mass of the American Public prefers not to think.....to huddle within their group of like individuals---blaming those other groups for their problems.....

I simply await retirement when I can own myself---

and back their stupid world off of me---



I feel absolutely no sympathy for the Fox watching, flag waving, Republican, American Middle class over the recent increases in gasoline prices.....none what so ever.....
In 2008 when gasoline hit over $4.00 per gallon did the American public learn anything---
of course not....
I was at the pump yesterday putting $16.00 worth of gas into my Prius and a Pickup truck driving, old fat guy yelled at his wife in the truck that he had just rang up $87.00 and was outraged....this of course was not a work truck---it was just a big ole truck to carry him and his fat wife around...I felt nothing for him---nothing----This refusal to change from experience is what will destroy our society and perhaps our species....
Once gasoline prices fell after 2008 the Amazing American voter when right back to buying huge SUV's to run their snotty children to soccer practice at 10 mpg...without a thought of what the future might bring---without a dent in the mental armor protecting the stupidity of their lifestyle....I therefore feel nothing for the American Middle class this time around---they have brought this economic crunch on themselves. These people,of course, are the same group whose favorite Politicians vote against high speed rail---or public transport of any kind---- I have noticed this time around, that drivers at the pump do not even want to look at my Prius ----during the 2008 price gouging they would ask me questions--blahblahblah---but this time they just stare, cow like, at the rate their money is vanishing into the tank, knowing they have only themselves to blame....the category of person i do feel for is the Secretary or McDonalds worker driving a compact car trying to stretch their dollar as far as it will go...I do feel sorry for them....but for the American middle class---- tough shit---the stupid go extinct---if you hadn't cut the Theory of evolution out of your species knowledge base you might understand this....but then again understanding when it comes too late is useless....

The Big Lebowski....My favorite of all Cohen Brothers films.

It was a complete, suck week at work--- more like the Apollo program of a suck work week---i had not purchased an action figure in a very long time----I decided to center up and survive this past work week by ordering a set of obscure action figures I have had on my wish list for a year...The Dude and Walter...(how a 58 year old hippie developed a Jones for action figures you will have to search the blog archives to discover)---these figures have been a yes/no yes/no yes/no situation for me for a year----they are sitting here in my nerd cave teaching me to ABIDE....


Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

I think that the Big Leboski teaches us about how to live. It is the perfect fit. To just abide.

Well I drive a V6 auto SWB pickup that gets about 18 mpg in town and about 21 mpg on the road. I drive and average of less than <1000< miles a month on a busy month. Most times it sit in front of my house for 3 to 4 days at a time until I need it. Then I am glad I have it.

It hauls trash to the land fill. Helps me to curb pick/recycle and pickup tools and wood when I need it to haul it from the lumberyard.

Most importantly it hauls my power chair around when I need it.

Do I wish it got better mileage? of course i do. But then the so called mini trucks don't get much better if at all.

But I also don't complain about the gas mileage. I do complain about the manipulation by speculators on the gas. I also believe that the tax on gas should also go up to bring and keep the cost at or above $4/gal. The money used to encourage conservation and research into alternative power and expansion of public transportation.

But then that is just me.

Have been reading you for awhile now. Really like your stuff. I wonder if you're the guy working in the cubicle next to me? I would ask, but they don't let us talk (kidding). I think you have shit figured out.

Freedom,
